Additional Details

Description: Hungarian American Cook Book is a collectible cookbook lover's dream. Hungarian cookery is unlike any other in that it lies between that of Europe (especially French) and that of the Near-Eastern countries. The foods used are those of our own country; the combining and methods of cooking are what give them their characteristic quality. Although gulyas (goulash and all its variations) is the most famous of Hungarian dishes, it is only one part of an enormously varied diet that runs the gastronomical gamut from stuffed lamb chops and paprika veal schnitzel to seventeen different kinds of strudel. 

Both the neophyte and experienced cook will find in this volume more than 1,300 recipes for jaded appetites, a veritable encyclopedia of wholesome, delicious, and economical Hungarian dishes especially adapted to American tastes. These may be prepared from foods obtainable at any well-stocked super-market or grocery.
